As Jan. 20 nears, people from around the world are preparing to travel to Washington, D.C., to witness the 56th Presidential Inauguration. Many will be making the journey by bus from around the country, and it is important that all visitors arrive and return home safely from the inaugural events.

When making travel plans for Jan.20, all bus passengers are encouraged to visit www.fmcsa.dot.gov for important pre-trip safety information, including how to choose a bus carrier, how to check their safety record, what you should know before boarding, and links to additional inaugural information. It is very important that all passengers be aware of the location of emergency exits and fire extinguishers on the bus in which they are traveling, listen to all driver instructions in the event of an emergency, and know who to contact if they need help.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) officials are expecting the number of attendees to be in the millions, with more than 10,000 buses estimated to arrive in the city. To reach bus companies, drivers, and the general public traveling to and from the Inauguration, FMCSA is encouraging driver and passenger safety by distributing safety materials, and making them available for passengers and organizers to download at: www.fmcsa.dot.gov/about/outreach/bus/bus.htm.
